about

Everyday is an adventure with indie pop artist madelyniris. Precise vocals and intricate harmonies make the foundation of this sweet, chill, indie pop record. Recorded with a broken macbook in the closets of sorority houses and wintered piano rooms at a midwestern university, this album will warm your heart with its honesty about the adventure of youth and love lost. If you've ever screamed in the car to a mix CD, or secretly hid a tattoo from your parents, you'll identify with the songs on "adventures."

Track Name: leave and never look back
Leave and Never Look Back

did you think that you could save me from myself?
i'm not the one that needs saving so find someone else
did you think that you could twist the pain
change the blame
set me up in flames
well i think you know
that you're the one who's changed
never thought it would be easier
to leave and never
look back
holding on to lies
giving back my eyes
to the love that saved me
did you think that you could save me from myself?
i'd rather stare at these four walls i know so well
i know their stories, i know their hells
i've been there too and i think they need my help
i don't need your saving -- go find someone else
never thought it would be easier
to leave and never
look back
holding on to lies
giving back my eyes
to the love that saved me
Track Name: ghost
Ghost

do you remember that first time you felt alive?
laying on your roof in the summer, staring at the sky
in your living room, slow dance on new years eve,
too young to notice, too young to think
you're a ghost to me
does she make you feel alive
like your world is set on fire
and nothing can stop you here tonight
is she the one that tells you everything is fine
when it's not
and does she try to heal the sickness in your eyes?
that's what i thought
you're a ghost to me
i'm sick and tired of being tired and sick
i can't make you love what you haven't missed.
your heart's a clock and that is it.

when did the fire leave my bones?
when did the fire leave your eyes?
Track Name: street signs and white lies
Street Signs and White Lies

we only sing when the moon is out
so the wolves all know our names
and 21 seems too young
for our wild souls to be tamed
and we're free
without
the locks
chained to
the bottom
of our feet
and i knew
how to make your heart feel
how to set you free
these old street signs and white lies they just keep running in circles holding on to hope and i
won't ever forget these summer nights
we can't stop now or break down we'll just keep
running in circles, holding on to hope that we
won't ever forget these summer nights
we'll sleep when we die
or we'll die trying
we won't stop singing till it's over
we won't stop screaming till we're older
cause we are the wild ones
life unrefined
we are the crooked young
broken by time
i have a smile that you can't shake
and you have a mind that i can't break
these old street signs and white lies they just keep
running in circles holding on to hope and i
won't ever forget these summer nights
we can't stop now or break down we'll just keep
running in circles, holding on to hope that we
won't ever forget these summer nights
and we'll run
farther than our feet can carry us
into the ocean deeper into love
we'll light this city on fire
we'll light this city on fire
we'll give these streets some life
we'll set ourselves on fire tonight
Track Name: let's restart
Let’s Restart

take me to the sea and let me wash your feet
we'll let the salt soak our wounded hearts
or maybe just downtown
we'll drink beer and run around
we'll crash our cars before we fall apart
in my dream you looked at me
said there's no place that you'd rather be
than wasting all your time on a crazy girl like me
i'll sigh and say no more
we still have places to explore
and love is sitting right outside your door Hold me down
Carve your name into my skin
Hold me down
Let our love begin again
but you screaming in the car
to the mix cd i made
and the rain pouring down on the pavement in the morning
or midnight talks with cheap white wine
and cigarettes for dinner
God it feels like life when i'm with you
not slipping through our fingers
Hold me down
Carve your name into my skin
Hold me down
Let our love begin again
from april's scraped knees
and 2009 screams
or backroads in the summer
and florida's open seas
we jumped off cliffs at a whim
crashing without hope to swim
breaking ribs and breaking hearts
kiss my lips and let's restart
kiss my lips and let's restart
Track Name: adventure
Adventure

i drove 10 hours just to see you
just to relive where my heart was
just to face what i've missed for 3 years
what 5 years time has done to us
we grow old and our faces change
our minds and hearts have been rearranged
our bodies tired with the coming age
our days are numbered
and we're not getting any younger
so why not come alive with me tonight?
we can go on an adventure and swear we'll never forget these summer nights
although our days may fade away
the cold can't take away our light
but you've fallen in love with time and science
and most of all her
she builds you up and tears you down
she claws at your head and makes you hurt
and you play with numbers in your head
while i make music in my bed
it's funny what time and distance did to us
Wish we followed our hearts and not our heads
our days are numbered
and we're not getting any younger
so why not come alive with me tonight?
we can go on an adventure
and swear we'll never forget these summer nights
although our days may fade away
the cold can't take away our light
(pick up the pieces
you want to feel this
don't let them kill it
just let your heart win)
we're all made of tattered skin and medicine
only waiting for the one to let love in
we're all made of tattered skin and medicine
waiting for the one to let adventure in
